Page Background




HS-PS3-1: Create a computational model to calculate the change

in the energy of one component in a system when the change in

energy of the other component(s) and every flow in and out of the

system are known.

HS-PS3-2: Develop and use models to illustrate that energy at the

macroscopic scale can be accounted for as a combination of energy

associated with the motions of particles (objects) and energy

associated with the relative positions of particles (objects).

HS-PS3-3: Design, build, and refine a device that works within

given constraints to convert one form of energy into another form

of energy.


HS-PS3-4: Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence

that the transfer of thermal energy when two components of

different temperature are combined within a closed system results

in a more uniform energy distribution among the components in

the system

HS-PS3-5: Develop and use a model of two objects interacting

through electric or magnetic fields to illustrate the forces between

objects and the changes in energy of the objects due to the

Waves and Electromagnetic Radiation

HS-PS4-1: Use mathematical representations to support a claim

regarding relationships among the frequency, wavelength, and

speed of waves traveling in various media.

HS-PS4-2: Evaluate questions about the advantages of using a

digital transmission and storage of information.

HS-PS4-3: Evaluate the claims, evidence, and reasoning behind

the idea that electromagnetic radiation can be described either by

a wave model or a particle model, and that for some situations one

model is more useful than the other.

HS-PS4-4: Evaluate the validity and reliability of claims in

published materials of the effects that different frequencies of

electromagnetic radiation have when absorbed by matter.

HS-PS4-5: Communicate technical information about how some

technological devices use the principles of wave behavior and wave

interactions with matter to transmit and capture information and

HS-ETS1-1: Analyze a major global challenge to specify qualitative and quantitative

criteria and constraints for solutions that account for societal need and wants.

HS-ETS1-2: Design a solution to a complex real-world problem by breaking it down into

smaller, more manageable problems that can be solved through engineering.

HS-ETS1-3: Evaluate a solution to a complex real-world problem based on prioritized

criteria and tradeoffs that account for a range of constraints, including cost, safety,

reliability, and aesthetics, as well as possible social, cultural, and environmental impacts.

HS-ETS1-4: Use a computer simulation to model the impact of proposed solutions to

a complex real-world problem with numerous criteria and constraints on interactions

within and between systems relevant to the problem.

HS-PS1-4: Develop a model to illustrate that the release or absorp-

tion of energy from a chemical reaction systems depends on the

changes in total bond energy.

HS-LS1-5: Use a model to illustrate how photosynthesis transforms

light energy into stored chemical energy.

HS-LS2-3: Construct and revise an explanation based on evidence

for the cycling of matter and flow of energy in aerobic and anaerobic


HS-LS2-4: Use mathematical representations to support claims for

the cycling of matter and flow of energy among organisms in an


HS-ESS1-1: Develop a model based on evidence to illustrate the life

span of the sun and the role of nuclear fusion in the sun’s core to

release energy that eventually reaches Earth in the form of radiation.

HS-ESS1-2: Construct an explanation of the Big Bang theory based

on astronomical evidence of light spectra, motion of distant galaxies,

and composition of matter in the universe.

HS-ESS1-3: Communicate scientific ideas about the way stars over

their life cycle, produce elements.

HS-ESS1-4: Use mathematical or computational representations to

predict the motion of orbiting objects in the solar system.

HS-ESS2-3: Develop a model based on evidence of Earth’s interior to

describe the cycling of matter by thermal convection.

HS-ESS2-4: Use a model to describe how variations in the flow of

energy into and out of Earth’s systems result in changes in climate.
